Image Comics signals ‘Rockstar and Softboy’ for February 2022

‘Rockstar and Softboy’ is a frenzied story following two best friends and their antics in Hollyweird, CA.

Press Release

Image Comics has announced Sina Grace’s Rockstar and Softboy is set to debut in February 2022. The one-shot spawned from a bond strengthened between Grace and comic writer Josh Trujillo during a DC Comics pitch competition. Expect a refreshing take on the buddy concept and a few fantastic surprises along the way.

“As a fan of buddy movies like Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion and Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar, it only just occurred to me that I can create a story of my very own where two gay besties throw a party that includes werewolves, vampires, zombies, witches, and the reviled Party Animal,” said Grace in a statement sent to AIPT. “Rockstar and Softboy is pure, frenzied, loving, ratchet friendship in a comic book.”
